Remake of the romance “Chrysanthemum in the Garden” together with the singer Olga Noel was among the best tracks of many world radio stations and in 2003 maxi-single “Les Chrysanthemes” (under the name of OLF project) was released in Russia. The band has 7 videos of the songs “Stereophonique”, “Voyage”, “2 Professors”, “Dancing”, “Les Chrysanthemes”, “Na Zare” and “Wake up” that were rotated on the MTV Russia, Muz-TV as well as on the Ukrainian and Belarusian musical channels.

Among MGI’s successful projects are remixes for “Mummy Troll”, “Megapolis”, “Tatu” and tracks of other famous Russian bands. In 2001 MGI took part in “Mummy Troll’s” concert in Gostiny Dvor and recorded the version of Viktor Zoy’s song “Malysh” that had never been released before. For a long time this song was the leader of many music charts.
Twice for the past years the band was the finalist of the French Electronic Music Contest. European labels (such as Pork Recordings, George V, Les Marquis, Pschent etc.) frequently choose MGI’s tracks for their compilations. Today MGI has a stronger and more dance-floor program. The artists define their new style as hardcore-jazz. It’s the total improvisation, the play without fixed forms, unpredictable combination of different tracks.
